Charity Roundup Fall 2016
It’s been a busy few months here at DS Plumbing, but as always we ensure we make time to support some of our favourite causes.
This summer and fall were filled with fun in the sun. We had a couple of chances to help some great local charities and work on our golf game while we were at it!
Putting Fore Paws
On September 30th we joined dozens of local area residents and businesses at the Hylands Golf Club as a sponsor of the Putting Fore Paws “Best Ball” golf tournament. Together, we raised $2,700 to help feed animals in need.
The tournament was organized by Empties for Paws Barrhaven and Area. This organization uses the proceeds from donated recyclables to help small, underfunded animal rescue charities with pet food and vet bills. Organizations like Vanier Street Cats, Safe Pet Ottawa, Adopt Me Cat Rescue, and the Pet Resource Bank either help foster homeless animals or help low-income families care for their pets. You can find maps with drop off locations near the bottom of this page.
Just Fore Dogs 1st Annual Best Ball Golf Tournament
We were proud to sponsor and participate in the Just Fore Dogs tournament, that raised $7,181 for the Ottawa Dog Rescue and Freedom Dog Rescue. We had a wonderful time at the Hammond Golf and Country Club and the weather could not have been nicer.
872 Kiwanis Kanata Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron Golf Tournament
We were gold sponsors at the Family Golf Tournament on July 29, 2016.
The Cadets are a great way for kids 12 – 18 years of age to learn and grow in a variety of ways, from fitness to public speaking to leadership. Most importantly, it’s a great way for young people to learn the rewards of community involvement.
